Whose judgments yet delay;
Who yet suspends the lifted sword,

But let us not despair;
Still open is the mercy seat
To penitence and prayer.

3. Kind Intercessor, to Thy love
This blessèd hope we owe;
O let Thy mercies plead above,
While we implore below!

4. Though justice near Thy awful throne
Attends Thy dread command,
Lord, hear Thy servants, hear Thy Son,
And save a guilty land.
